    I’m looking to purchase 4gigs of RAM for my new iMac to take it up to 8gigs total. I was wondering if anyone here has any idea on which site has the best deals on RAM for the new iMac’s. I prefer the Crucial brand, but if the price is too good to pass up, I would gladly buy a lesser known name.

    Amazon and B&H Photo both have the Crucial 4GB kit for $89.95

    Thanks for the tip. Is that their everyday pricing or is that a cyber monday deal?

    I just checked and that's Amazon's regular price. The price of RAM varies wildly from one week to the next, and unfortunately, it's on the high side right now. A few months ago, 4GB of Crucial RAM was as low as $53.99.

    As high as it is now, it may be in your best bet to wait to upgrade if money is a concern. If not, then it's not that big of a deal to pay $85-$90.

    I'm looking too, so hopefully we'll see a Cyber Monday special!

    RAM prices have been fluctuating wildly. Amazon was at $99.95 last Friday but dropped t0 $89.95 yesterday. Those seem to be the best prices right now. We'll see tomorrow, though...

    Thanks for the info. I think I would be willing to pull the trigger for the 4 Gigs of RAM if I see the price at around $65-$75 on Cyber Monday.

    Agreed. 200-pin won't fit in a 204-pin slot.
